Los Angeles

Back from a week in L.A., most of the sketches were done during meetings or in the plane as I didn't really have time to sit outside and draw the buildings.
The first sketch was done in Dan's van on our way to Vegas, I've posted a version without the keyline too as I like the abstract feel to it.

EEEEEEEEEEH!
You are back!
Great Sketches as usual.
I like as well how the color sample feels with out the line work.
But I can't believe you can draw in the back of a car without get sick. I get sick in cars as hell. Sometimes even when I'm driving!!

I like a lot the poses of Jasmine. Her way of sitdown is very atractive.

Welcome back!
Great pictures from the back of the van.
And I'm with Alberto there - I'd be sick as a dog drawing while in motion - even on the plane.

Good to see you back

Yaaay lots of sketches - the illustration in the van without the keyline looks jazzy to me, I like it!

HI Stephane,
I like the sketch from Dans mini van. And Jasmine from our film class. Heard about your bump on the road. I'm glad you two were OK. How was Santa Monica? Had a great time with you guys.
Thanks Jeff
